Witch Hazel trees over rated?

last month

I think I'm in the minority here, but I wanted to ask, do other people actually like their with hazel trees??
Personally I HATE mine (if they've been identified correctly). They aren't showy or very ornamental despite what I've found online, I think it's because mine are shaded out by pine trees, they grow super wide and winding and have tons of little trunks that shoot up everywhere. They've never been anything but a pest and in highly considering ripping them out and replacing them with something more useful environmentally, or something just plain nicer looking. These trees and the Barberry shrubs seem to take over everything! Every year I run around my property chopping down barberry shoots since they're very invasive here!

Have other people had this experience?
